  • Hold on to items you want to dispose of until you are able to dispose of them  in a garbage can, blue bag or green cart.


  • Pick up any litter or debris that you come across when you are outside enjoying our beautiful community.


  • Properly tie down, secure or tarp all materials that you are transporting in the back of a truck or trailer.


  • Make sure there is no loose litter or debris thrown in the back of your truck or trailer before traveling on community roadways.


  • Keep a litter bag inside your vehicle to contain any loose trash you have.


  • Remove curbside materials from the curb if your materials have not been collected. Phone the Waste Management Hotline at (902) 567-1337 to notify the department your materials were not collected.
